WoolyLady’s Newest Limited Edition

Specially-featured hand-dyed wools PLUS a Deluxe Free Pattern


January's Limited Edition is Red Cardinal

Brighten up any room with Red Cardinal

An impressive sight in any season is the majestic cardinal, flitting from branch to branch in a furtive search for the most adequate piece of fruit. The distinctive red peak on his head announces an early arrival at the precocious pear tree. Is he searching for something else?

Our Red Cardinal Limited Edition makes a great pillow

Like a view through dewy glass

With clean angles and a "leaded glass" effect, our Red Cardinal is an incredible new Limited Edition design you're going to love. We used underlapping pieces of Shadowy Snow to create the effect of Stained Glass. This is a stunning example of technique innovation and stitch mastery, all accessible through our included, Deluxe pattern.

Our Red Cardinal Hand Thread Kit

Great threads on this Red Cardinal

Our eight-piece Hand Thread Kit for Red Cardinal is an exploration in six great staple colors of Valdani Pearl Cotton, and two excellent reds by Weeks for the Cardinal's body parts.

Amazing detail from our Red Cardinal

You will enjoy the feel and quality of these hand threads, and your Limited Edition project will simply shine with them. This great 8-piece set is $39.95.

Red Cardinal looks great in any setting

Add color to your wall, plus a little bit of longing

It's not just an incredible pillow, we'd say our Red Cardinal makes a great wall hanging too. 

The Red Cardinal Complete Set

Open a box of gleaming joy

Red Cardinal is coming to you as a bundle of hand-picked, hand-dyed wools, PLUS a deluxe pattern included at no charge. We hope you enjoy this design as much as we've enjoyed creating it. Red Cardinal has quickly become a favorite around here, and we're honored to envision our pillow gracing your home.

Limited Edition Details

Limited Editions are collections of hand-dyed wool in special colors dyed specifically to coordinate with a fresh, new pattern only available with the purchase of the collection. These collections always total a half yard of hand-dyed wool and they sell for $54.95 plus shipping. Limited Editions are offered six times a year. There are only a certain number of these collections created for each offering. Many customers have requested that they be placed on an Auto-Ship Program for our Limited Editions. This guarantees they will receive a collection and new pattern every 2 months - and receive a price discount, making the collection $49.95 plus shipping. We dye enough wool for everyone on our Auto-Ship Program plus a little more. When the collections are gone, they're gone and we're on to the next design. If you are interested in joining the Auto-Ship Program (and saving money on each Limited Edition), please call us at the studio at 970-275-7800.

WoolyLady offers all the extras you'll need to complete your project. We've got great Chenille Needles, and Miracle Markers work beautifully for temporarily marking placement of objects on your wool background. We use them on a lot of projects. A package of three markers sells for $8.25.

If you're a stitcher who uses adhesives for your projects, we recommend Sulky KK 2000 Temporary Spray Adhesive. We lightly spray the back of our design elements before placing them on the background for stitching. There's no smell, stickiness or messy makes our work easy peasy! It costs $19.99. (Please note, we are unable to ship Sulky KK 2000 outside of the continental US.)
